On Overview Of The Journey

I decided to do another sewing blog since I've been getting quite a few comments on my family blog to share more of my journey in piecing quilts and sewing.I didn't take my first piecing class until after my oldest daughter was married. One of the first quilts I pieced was this one for her new baby to be Savannah....(note the Minky green quilt on the table that was also Savannah's)...
a couple of years later I did Bailee's....and now I have one almost ready for the quilter for her new arrival Navie. Brianna loves the brown and other colors all thrown in to make it more scrappy.
I recently finished these pillowcases that I started 30+ years ago! I've used them and I really like how they turned out.
I have a love for Raggedy Ann and Andy that started long before I made these Halloween costumes for two of my kids.
I even made one for my first granddaughter and have plans to make them for the other two and each grandchild that comes along.
I once made a family of them for a dear friend.I made this wall hanging for my granddaughters and totally loved making it!
One year I made purses for my daughters and daughter-in-law.
I took this picture and didn't realize that it wasn't hanging right until after it had already been wrapped up for Christmas but you can tell by the other purses how it should look.
I tried to incorporate their favorite colors into the purses.I've been known to make fleece blankets for the grandkids favorite stuffed animals and even put their names on them!This is my favorite quilt that I've done for myself.More baby quilts using Minky. This one was for Bailee.I tried to reproduce an antique rag doll for a friend of mine. I like the loopy haired dolls better but this wig did make it look more like the original doll she loved so that's what mattered.A quick and easy quilt.I've done table toppers for myself and my mother-in-law.This "Flying Free" X-blocks wall hanging is one of my favorites.

Missionary Christmas stockings that won't load the right way so you have to cock your head to see them. Sorry.
Quick summer quilt out of Minky for my new granddaughter. The wind tends to blow around here a lot when I take pictures and the borders aren't really as wavy as they look.
Last but not least a quilt I did for my new daughter-in-law. She picked out the fabrics and I took a class to do it.
I also gave her this quilt when they got engaged. I love doing this pattern bz it's so much fun!
